A court of frost and starlight review

Hello again lovelies,

Back again with another review from my all time favourite book (novella); a court of frost and starlight.

RATING 100/10 (yes I love this book a lot)


Firstly the cover:

This cover is actually my favourite out of all of them, the writing colour is different showing is as a novella rather than a main storyline book. I think that is was a wise choice and I love the colour combo of the black background with the gold writing, it stands out especially on a shelf with the rest of the series. I also love that Feyre is now portrayed in a light dress symbolising a more wholesome storyline with less drama (although still not lacking in it).


Next the characters:

Just a short overview of the main characters.

Feyre is high ladybof the night court and mates to Rhys.

Rhys is high lord of the night court and mates to Feyre.

Amren is still Rhys’ second in command despite now only being high fae after her dip into the cauldren. P. S she is still as feisty as a high fae.

Morrigan (mor) is still a bubbly fun character who brings the party to any occasion.

Cassian (cas) the strongest Ilryan warrior in history who seems to be struggling with his lack of relationship with Nesta.

Azriel (az) is still quiet and withdrawn but the shadowsinger seems to have made a special bond with Elain.

Nesta is adjusting harshly to life after Hybern and has withdrawn herself from the household and maintainers an isolated lifestyle.

Elain is slowly adjusting to life as a high fae and has begun to become more animated and forms a bond with Azriel.

I love the mystery left within the characters that we will have to wait until the next instalment to read more into it. I also love the character development between the last book and this one.


Next the storyline:

The story follows the group over their winter fest period overcoming some of the problems faced after the war with Hybern and their attempt at a normal holiday. Even though nothing is ever normal in a Sarah J Maas book.


Next my opinions:

I think that this section is pointless as I already made my opinions very clear but here goes.

I love the flow of the novella it us exactly as a novella should be. It answers some of the questions the last book left and creates new storyline for the follow on book. With not too much drama squeezed into such a small book and enough that it is still interesting. The character developments make sense and I feel that they make chronological sense.

I am really looking forward to Sarah J Maas’ new release in 2020.


Lastly my favourite bits:

My favourite character in this book is still Rhys what can I say i am in love with the thought of loving him.

My favourite line comes from Mor when she and Feyre are in the cabin and Feyre sends Rhys a very intimate image down the bond while he was in the steam room with Cas and Az.

“you got him kicked out didn’t you?”

It has me howling every time I read it.


Thanks again for reading especially if you reached the end. Let me know your opinions on the ‘a court of thornes and roses’ series in the comments and let me know if there is anything you want me to include.

A court of wings and ruin review

Hi and welcome back,

So as I have recently finished acowar I thought I would share my opinions.

RATING 11/10


So firstly the cover:

So as with the previous books I love the style of the cover, I think that the cover draws you in as you read with your eyes first the colour is beautiful, the writing style draws you in and the images show the heroine from Sarah J Maas’ eyes.


Next the characters:

Here is a small introduction to the main characters.

Feyre is the main protagonist and she is high fae adapting, mates to Rhys and high lady of the night court.

Tamlin is the high lord of the spring Court and becomes a secondary antagonist for the most part of the story.

Lucien is a high fae and is no longer tamlins emissary after following Feyre to the night court.

Ianthe is the youngest high priestess and has a dark side when it comes to lovers, after selling out Feyres sisters to the king of hybern, Feyre finds it impossible to forgive her.

Rhysand (Rhys) is high lord of the night court (and a total babe) Yes Rhys is my favourite as you will probably be able to tell, mate to Feyre.

Amren is neither human nor high fae no one knows what she is but she is a short feisty character who also happens to be so strong she was appointed Rhys’ second in command.

Morrigan (Mor) is Rhys’ cousin and is his third in command in his court, she is described as the one Rhys would call when the armies are dead.

Cassian (Cas) is a snarky confident illyrian warrior who leads Rhys’ armies.

Azriel (Az) is a quiet mystirious illyrian warrior who serves as Rhys’ shadowsinger.

The king of hybern is the main antagonist in the series we know very little about him other than he is very powerful and evil. He will do anything to bring down the wall and take over the human realm.

Elain is Feyres elder sister, she is a kind soul who isn’t adapting well to becoming high fae especially when she was engaged to a mortal who hunts the fae. Elain is lucien mate but she refuses to accept the bond due to her engagement.

Nesta is Feyres eldest sister and she is a fiery stubborn character who does her best to ensure the other characters dislike her. Nesta stole from the cauldren and no one knows what she took.

The character development in this book is immense, each character has their own identity and their own personality which Maas manages to bring out and maintain throughout, there are many other characters in the book but if I mentioned them all the blog would go on forever.


Next the storyline:

This story follows Feyre on her challenging journey from the spring Court back to the night court, where she tries to help her sisters adjust and her attempts to find help in the upcoming war from the other High Lords and then into her battle with the king of hybern meeting some unlikely aquantences along the way.


Next my opinions:

I love this book even more than the first two, I love this series so much hence why I have read it so many times. This series houses some of my favourite ever fictional characters and my favourite fictional couple.

I love the writing style and the description of all the different places visited, all the different characters and all the different creatures. Sarah J Maas is a truly gifted writer.


Finally my favourite bits:

My favourite character in the book is of course Rhysand he is a truly amazing character and I’m sure he is a fan favourite.

My favourite ship is of course Feysand do I have to say more, I love the drama and the passion of their relationship.

My favourite creature in this book is a hard choice, I think it has to be byraxis (the creature in the library) we aren’t told much about his character or what he really is but I love the mystery.

My favourite line in the book comes from Rhys when he is giving his speach before the hybern fight.

“I would have waited five hundred more years for you. A thousand years. And if this was all the time we were allowed to have… the wait was worth it.


Thanks again for reading especially if you got this far, leave a comment with any other sections you think I should add to future blogs, and any tips on how to improve.

A court of mist and fury review

Hi guys, and welcome back.

This is only my second blog ever and I’m hoping that I will be able to post regularly and I hope you enjoy, so here goes.

RATING 10/10

I recent finished A court of mist and fury and here are some of my opinions.


Firstly the cover:

Again just like the ‘A court of thornes and roses cover ‘ it is beautiful and simple, I love the writing style and I love how simple the cover is. The white writing on the blue background makes it pop and it is beautiful.


Next the characters:

Here is a small introduction to the main characters.

Feyre is the main protagonist and she is a newly turned high fae adapting to her new life, also night court emmisary to the human worlds

Tamlin is the high lord of the spring Court and Feyre’s ‘betrothed’.

Lucien is a high fae and Tamlins emissary.

Ianthe is the youngest high priestess who befriends Feyre when she needs it most but has a dark side when it comes to lovers.

Rhysand (Rhys) is high lord of the night court (and a total babe) Yes Rhys is my favourite as you will probably be able to tell.

Amren is neither human nor high fae no one knows what she is but she is a short feisty character who also happens to be so strong she was appointed Rhys’ second in command.

Morrigan (Mor) is Rhys’ cousin and is his third in command in his court, she is described as the one Rhys would call when the armies are dead.

Cassian (Cas) is a snarky confident illyrian warrior who leads Rhys’ armies.

Azriel (Az) is a quiet mystirious illyrian warrior who serves as Rhys’ shadowsinger.

The king of hybern is the main antagonist in the series we know very little about him other than he is very powerful and evil. He will do anything to bring down the wall and take over the human realm.


Next the storyline:

This book follows Feyre on her attempted recovery from under the mountain and her transition into a high fey, she struggles adapting to life in the spring Court as Tamlin’s bride and finds help in unlikely friends. Along side her new friends Feyre battles to find the book of breathing to destroy an ancient evil surfacing because of the King of Hybern.


Now onto my opinions:

I love the character developments throughout the book and how you learn more and more about the characters all the way through, you don’t just learn everything in one fatal swoop, it is cleverly spread out and helps you remember more about the characters and helps piece things together like a puzzle. I love the way the characters change throughout the storyline and how based on events spaced out throughout the previous and current book the characters emotions and physical wellbeing change.

The storyline is also strong and very well thought out. It makes chronological sense and isn’t rushed into just a few days it is spread out over the course of months. The way Sarah J Maas writes makes it easy to follow along with the book and makes you want to read and read and read.

I can’t pick out any faults in this book it is incredible in all ways.


Lastly onto my favourite bits:

My favourite character in this book is Rhysand his character development is insanely good and Sarah J Maas shows different sides to him as he interacts with different people or situations within the book. And he is and absolute babe.

My favourite quote from this book comes from Amren when talking to Cassian when taking in the training ring.

”Touch me Cassian, and I’ll remove your favourite part. Small as it might be. ”

I love the humor in it and how ‘very Amren’ it is.

My favourite creature in this book is the bone carver. He is so eerie and ‘extra’ he is one of the mysterious characters which we don’t know a lot about.


Thanks again for reading, leave a comment below if you have any tips on how to improve.

A court of thornes and roses review

Hi there, I’m very new to book blogging. In fact this is my first one ever so go easy on me also any hints and tips on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

RATING – 10/10


So firstly the cover:

Obviously it is stunning, it is relatively plain but with just enough detail to draw you in. I think the writing style on the cover is beautiful and clear and the imagery created tells you exactly what type of book it is.


Next the characters:

The characters in the book are well thought out with the perfect amount of detail to show the reader exactly how Sarah J Maas pictured the characters.

An introduction to the main characters:

Feyre is the protagonist and she shows a strong and determined human character in the book.

Tamlin is a fae high lord of the spring Court who is under a curse and needs Feyre to help break it.

Lucien a high fae, his father is the high lord of the autumn court and is now emissary of the spring Court.

Amarantha is the main antagonist in the story, she is a firey red head who holds power over the curse on the High Lords.

Rhysand is a secondary antagonist for most of the book but in the end of the book ends up on the same side of the fight as our protagonist Feyre.


Next the storyline:

The book follows Feyre who is a human on her journey, whilst hunting for her families meal for the night she comes across a wolf and slays it, it turns out that the wolf is fae and Feyre gets drawn into the fae world of pyrithian, during her journey she finds some unlikely friends in the fae who imprisoned her, she doesn’t figure out how to help her new found fae friends fight the blight until it is almost too late. Whether or not she manages, will be up to you to read.


Now down to the nitty gritty; Opinions:

I am not going to sugar coat it, I absolutely adore this book as you would have seen by the rating. I belive that the detail in the story is amazing. Sarah J Maas’ attention to detail is insane. Every single one of her characters has their own background and their own character all explained throughout the book. She describes each with enough detail that you can visualise the characters and picture the expressions on their faces.

The storyline is well wrote and incredible. There are enough twists and turns in the book which aren’t answered straight away, it leaves you guessing and wanting to read more and more, the first time I read it I believe I read it in one sitting because I just needed to know what happened next. The first time I read it I remember a lot of the plot twists came as a shock because I hadn’t heard a lot about the books. Which is exactly how it should be.


Lastly my favourite bits:

My favourite character in this book has to be Feyre I loved the way her character developed and how sassy she became towards the middle and how her character developed towards the end.

My favourite quote from the book has to be from Feyre talking to Tamlin about the Suriel.
“He also said that you liked being brushed, and if I’m a clever girl, I might train you with treats.”
I just remember the first time I read it I sat laughing to myself for ages.

My favourite creature in the book is the Naga. I love the image that was created in my mind when it was described hence why it ended up my favourite.
